Up in '12: Amanda Mair
16 year old Amanda Mair, from a small town near Stockholm, Sweden, is gaining fast attention for her sophisticated singles, House and Doubt, released via the elegant Labrador label. Rather than take the electropop route, she's chosen a chiming, airy sound similar to that of her producer Philip Ekström's band, The Mary Onettes.
She reminds me a bit of a baby Anneli Drecker. What do you think?
Amanda Mair's debut single, House:
And her new release, Doubt
You can download Doubt for free via Labrador. An album follows in early 2012.
